Stay Informed: Get COVID-19 Alerts

As Springfield Township cares deeply about the health of our community, we are keeping a close eye on the development, science and all information available on the spread of the Corona Virus (COVID-19). We are receiving updates regularly from the state of Ohio Emergency Management Agency, Ohio Department of Health and Hamilton County Public Health. Here are resources you should be aware of now.:


  • The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) has opened a public call center to answer questions regarding coronavirus (COVID-19). The call center will be open 7 days a week from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and can be reached at 1-833-4-ASK-ODH (1-833-427-5634). 



  • In addition to practicing regular healthy habits to limit the spread of germs, the public can now sign up to get alerts and tips from Hamilton County officials regarding COVID-19. Alerts are available via text message, e-mail, and voice call through the Alert Hamilton County system. 

  • To sign up for COVID-19 alerts, please visit the Alert Hamilton County (Alert HC) website: www.alerthc.org
    • If you already have an Alert HC/Smart911 account, log in to your existing account and select “COVID-19 Alerts” at the bottom of the opt-in alert list. 
    • If you have not yet signed up for Alert HC, create a Smart911 Safety Profile and select “COVID-19 Alerts” at the bottom of the opt-in alert list. 

The best thing that everyone can do is to practice good hygiene.  The best way to protect yourself from the spread of this virus is:


 *   Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.


 *   If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.


 *   Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.


 *   Avoid close contact with people who are sick.


 *   Stay home when you are sick.


 *   Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.


 *   Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
